Create Manpower Log Entries

Also available on    


To create an entry in the Manpower Log of the Project level Daily Log tool.


The Manpower Log tracks the people on site who have completed work on the project for that day. You are able to collect information on the companies on site, the number of workers, the number of hours they worked, and the cost code associated with their work.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions: 'Standard' or 'Admin' on the project's Daily Log tool.
    'Read only' and above permissions on the Directory tool.


  1. Navigate to the project's Daily Log tool.
  2. Click Create Daily Log.
  3. Select the Manpower Log from the drop-down menu.
  4. Scroll to the Manpower Log.
  5. Enter the following information.

    • No.: This uneditable field counts the number of entries in a Log category. (e.g. The first log entry created will be No. 1. The second log entry will be No. 2).

    • Contact / Company: Select from the drop-down menu the company performing the work.

    • #Workers: Enter the number of workers from the selected company on the job for the day.

    • #Hours: Enter the total number of hours each worker within the selected company performed on the job that day. If workers from the same company worked different hours, Procore recommends creating a separate entry.

    • Man Hours: This field will display the product of #Workers and #Hours.
      E.g. 3 (#Workers) x 7 (#Hours) = 21 (Man Hours).

    • Cost Code: Select from the drop-down menu the cost code associated with the log entry. 

    • LocationSelect or enter a location from the Location drop-down menu.
